The six-time All-Pro, who won a Super Bowl with the Steelers, has lost more than 100 pounds since his retirement in 2011.
This past weekend he ran his first marathon, finishing the New Orleans Rock & Roll Marathon in 03:56:17.
Does he look a lot different now (compared to the photo at the top of this story)? Yes, yes he does:
He kind of looks like that dude from "Dexter," right?
Faneca told Runners World that he lost the weight by watching what he eats (he lowered his calorie intake to 1,800 a day) and doing cardio exercise six days a week. He also dropped this great quote:
"A lot of people ask me, do I miss football? I don't miss football but what I do miss is that first beer after a game," he said. "I had the same feeling after the race."
